Bodrum beaches and resorts

The Bodrum peninsula or Milasa as it is officially called, extends for about 30 km from Bodrum to Turgutreis. The whole coast has many bays and resorts all well connected with the main city. The liveliest area equipped for tourism and is situated between Bodrum and Trurgutreis, while on the northern part are many of large luxury hotel chains. Bodrum center, offers great holiday opportunities for the visitors with its intense nightlife, beautiful beaches, amazing coves, wonderful nature, historical sites, quality hotels and holiday villages.

In fron of Bodrum is the island Karada known for its mineral springs. A small portion of the springs is visible from the jetty, but there’s a gap in the rocky overhang, that gives you access to the mineral springs within the cave. We watched a few folks enjoying the springs – but didn’t explore them ourselves.

Gümbet tourist resort

Gumbet is a lively beach resort and a popular tourist destination on the Aegean coast of Turkey, 3 km from famous Bodrum resort. Gumbet has become a major tourist destination on the Aegean coast of Turkey especially for the UK holidaymakers. When a small and quiet village that peacefully inhabited this heavenly cove between the pine-forested mountains and glittering topaz-blue bay was discovered by the sun-hungry holidaymakers, it was quickly submerged by a myriad of excellent hotels, apartments, bars, cafes, pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, shops and tourist facilities.

This once unknown retreat has been transformed into a holidaymaker’s paradise and one of the most popular tourist resorts in Turkey, as its curved kilometres of golden sand, excellent restaurants, nightclubs, water sports opportunities and safe swimming make partygoers and families alike flock to this stunning resort.
